    I am looking to replace my reefer doors with new black ones. Anyone have an idea on price for a Carrier 7300x?

    Not cheap at all. If they're not beat up just paint them for a lot less.

    Thanks. Haven’t checked into the painting price yet. With the time down to have someone paint them the right way was just wondering if it would be easier to replace them.

    Find a company that does vinyl wraps on cars. They could sticker the doors black in a couple hours. Some of them do mobile work so you could arrange it at a convenient place and time.

    Checked into one close to home and they were around 1500 and wouldn’t guarantee they would stay on with all the edging and curves. Might have to check out a different one and see what they say.

    Paint is far cheaper than all new doors.

    Vinyl won't stick worth a crap on them. When you paint them you have to spray a binder on first.

    I was wondering about that. Mine have that textured material to them. The old white ones.

    I was kinda figuring about 2000 but that was just a shot in the dark. I bought a used trailer and the doors are orange, my truck is dark purple. Not a good combo.
